Nutrition Tip

Shiitake mushrooms have one of the highest amounts of copper, a mineral that supports healthy blood vessels, bones, and immune support. Half a cup of shiitake mushrooms gives you 72 percent of your daily recommended intake of copper. Shiitake mushrooms are also a rich source of selenium, providing 33 percent of your daily recommended intake.

Shiitake mushrooms are a heart healthy food . They contain eritadenine, a compound known to reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood. They also contain beta-glucans that reduce inflammation and help prevent the intestines from absorbing cholesterol. 

Shiitake are rich in polysaccharides like lentinans and other beta-glucans. These compounds support our immune system by boosting white blood cell production, protect against cell damage, and have a host of anti-inflammatory properties.
